Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your wife ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate) is high, and other blood reports are within normal limits. ESR is a non-specific test, and it only indicates that a person has some infection or inflammation in the body. If you provide some clinical symptoms, then I can help you better, if she has no complaint, then this will typically resolve once the inflammation and infection in the body have subsided. Advice to check for uric acid, vitamin D, calcium, and RA factor if the history of join pain. There is no specific medication to bring the ESR down unless we find what is causing raised ESR.
